Ingredients

  • 1 recipe basic bread dough
  • Olive oil for frying
  • 16 fresh marinated anchovies (see basic recipe)
  • 1 bulb fennel, fronds removed and saved, bulb trimmed and sliced 1/8-inch thick
  • 1 cup freshly grated Caciocavallo cheese
  • 2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons virgin olive oil

Directions

Heat 3 inches olive oil in deep frying pan to 375 degrees.

Roll dough into 4 10-inch circles and fry, one at a time, until golden brown, about 6 to 7 minutes, to create the tarongia. Drain each tarongia on paper towels and set aside.

In a medium saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons virgin olive oil until just smoking and add sliced fennel bulb. Cook until soft and golden brown, stirring regularly, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain fennel and allow to cool. Mix in fennel fronds and set aside.

Spread 1/4 fennel mixture on top of each tarongia and sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons Caciocavallo. Place 4 anchovies on each tarongia and sprinkle with remaining Caciocavallo. Broil each tarongia until light golden brown and serve warm.
